Summary:                    ifupdown fails to set hwaddress
Description: 
When using ifup to enable an interface that has a hwaddress line in
/etc/network/interfaces the SIOCSIFHWADDR ioctl fails with a message that
the device is busy.  This happens because all the parameters are sent on a
single ifconfig line and thus the interface is set to an UP state before
the hwaddress portion is processed.
